Jack White signs to Columbia

WHITE BOARDS COLUMBIA BUSS: Former White Stripes founder Jack White has been inked to Columbia for his first-ever solo album, Blunderbuss, which will be released April 24 on his Third Man Records through Columbia. "Love Interruption," the first single, will be available to purchase tonight at 9 p.m. PST/12 a.m. EST. A vinyl version of the "Love Interruption" single featuring exclusive non-LP B-side "Machine Gun Silhouette" comes out Feb. 7 on Third Man, but is available now for pre-order. White describes the album as "one I couldn't have released until now. I've put off making records under my own name for a long time but these songs feel like they could only be presented under my name. These songs were written from scratch, had nothing to do with anyone or anything else but my own expression, my own colors on my own canvas." (1/30p)
